As of April 1st, Recycling material is no longer being landfilled!
Together with the communities we serve, we have reduced recycling contamination to a suitable level within the local recycling markets. This means the material you are putting in your curbside recycling carts will no longer be landfill ed and instead turned into something new!
Thank you to our customers for learning the new rules of recycling and the effort you are putting forth in Recycling Right for our local programs and markets.
Please remember, no glass should be placed in your recycling carts – only Corrugated Cardboard, Milk Jug style containers, Tin and Aluminum cans and Newspapers and their inserts. When in doubt, let our Waste Wizard help out!
The key to continuing to reduce our communities carbon footprint is to remain focused on Reduce and Reuse, then Recycle!
Here are a few more tips to make your recycling count:
Place only the 4 accepted materials in your curbside recycling cart
Remove lids from milk jugs and tin cans and place in trash
Take glass bottles and jars and #2 plastic bottleneck containers to your local recycling depots
Rinse out all residues
Use the Bottledrop and get your deposit refund!
Recycle plastic bags at local participating retail stores
